About Malteser International
Malteser International is a non-governmental organization with headquarters in Europe and America. The organization’s General Secretariat, as well as its European headquarters are located in Cologne, Germany. The American headquarters are based in New York City, USA.
The international network of the Order of Malta plays an essential role in our work, allowing us to help people in need quickly and efficiently. Currently, 27 national associations and priories of the Order of Malta are members of Malteser International, and actively support the organization within their jurisdictions. Currently, both regional branches in Europe and the Americas serve as associate members.
We provide emergency relief in crises such as natural disasters, epidemics, or armed conflicts. During acute crises, teams from Malteser International are on the ground as soon as possible to provide emergency medical care, and ensure the supply of food and other essential aid materials as needed. From the very beginning, the rebuilding and recovery of the affected area is one of our essential considerations. Wherever possible, we also provide transitional aid and assistance to reduce the risk of future disasters – remaining present long-term at the scene of more protracted crises.
